    What? No fennel? I keed… Your garden sounds like it will yield fantastic results! I’m impressed with your many varieties of basil; I only have two. 😦 You’ll have to keep us posted on the garden as it grows… 🙂

  2. i will be growing fennel as a micro green but nothing in the ground, yet…

    Proving Ground + Chilly Water = Sweet Leaf….Makes sense to me!

    Looks like we both had the same craving for Mexican food. I meant to come introduce myself but you guys took off before I made it by. Looks like an interesting garden. Looking forward to see how you’ll be using everything.
